    Default Rear brake change

    The pads on my rear brakes need changing. Do i have to have the discs replaced or will it be ok to just change the pads?

    If the disc's aren't badly scored in anyway then should be ok to change just the pads,look at the inside part of the disc,normally where it score's the worst.....

    A good idea to replace disks as well, depends on mileage and condition. Get a complete kit for £50 or so from VX
